What is "Drakkar"?

Drakkar were the Viking war ships. Each had a "head" of a monster so that when the Vikings were pillaging a village, approaching in the fog, the first thing the villagers would see where the boats "heads" and it would scare them, making them think it was a sea monster or a heavenly/unnatural foe rather than another tribe. The Vikings were masters of psychological warfare!
